A Soul Reclaimed: #bookreview

A Soul Reclaimed by Shayna Grissom is literally set in Hell. The main characters, Nora and Aegis, visited every circle of Hell. In Dante’s Inferno, there are 9 circles of Hell (Limbo. Lust. Gluttony. Greed. Anger. Heresy. Violence. Fraud. Treachery.) In A Soul Reclaimed, there are 7 levels that are similar to Dante’s circles but not exactly the same. I try not to think about Hell too much but I might think about it more than I want. I do like shows that talk about Hell in small doses – “Good Omens” and “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.”

Nora is at the very least the step-daughter of the steward of hell. She has some untapped powers that the reader will find out about later. She’s smart and stubborn. Her relationship with her mother is strained. Her mother, Bella, focuses more on her husband, Vinicio, than on her daughter. For whatever reason, Bella sends Nora’s tutor away. After the tutor is sent away, weird things begin to happen to Nora. She is drugged, kidnapped and left in the Starry Wood. Unfortunately, the Starry Wood is scarier than it sounds. I mean, it is a forest in hell.

I imagine her to look sort of like Bailee Madison.

The vampire, Aegis, is fairly interesting. I wonder what his secrets are but unfortunately, he is having some problems with his memory. I picture him as resembling Ewan McGregor. Aegis just seems to have that kind of vibe – charming with a dash of brooding.

So after Nora is left in the woods, the monsters start chasing her. Aegis comes out of nowhere to save her. Later in the book, you will find out why. Aegis and Nora travel to all of the levels of hell. They are looking for clues about what happened to Nora and also hiding from her stepfather. Aegis and Nora are pretty sure that the stepfather is trying to kill Nora but they aren’t sure why.

There’s some humor but it’s not really a funny book. Regardless of the lack of jokes, A Soul Reclaimed is still worth reading.

If you like fantasy, then there’s a chance that you might like this book. If you are worried that you will go to hell for reading a book that is set in hell, then the book might not be for you.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
